COMIC: America, I Never Agreed to Have You in My Head

by Famous Female Artist


Before bed and in the morning, after my shower and unprompted, all my life, I have learned so many things about the United States of America.


This monolith always at war with itself and all the world around it.


I made this comic last year as a culmination of feeling so much frustration at how many aspects of my thinking were tainted by the unavoidable global spectacle of US but this year I have learned that it also taught me to expand solidarity globally.


Enjoy this poem I wrote when entering Moscow at the beginning of last summer feeling really tender and lucid featuring CeafăLată, my sweetest and most melancholy creation.
